Chipped tooth: Teeth with small chips are easily repaired with tooth colored composite fillings, unless there is some underlying problem that caused your tooth to chip which might require other types of restorations. If the chip is very slight and smoothing it off would not adversely effect the aesthetic tooth symmetry or the bite, that's another possibility.
